Abstract:

The Proposed Action covers a joint testing program to be conducted by AEDC and UTSI. Diagnostic test equipment, including cameras, flow field probes, and optical paths for sensors, would be exposed to a hot gas plume generated by a J-85-5 turbojet engine with afterburner G-85-5 engine. The test platform is housed at the UTSI J-85-5 test facility. The plan is for tests to occur roughly every 2 months initially and ultimately every 2 weeks. Individual tests would take place over approximately 4 hours with the J-85-5 engine operating as a gas plume generator for approximately 1 hour during the test period. During the hour of engine burn, 20 minutes would be at 50 percent power, 20 minutes at 75 percent power, 10 minutes at 100 percent power without afterburner, and 10 minutes at maximum with afterburner. The 100 percent power and afterburner events would last a maximum of 1.5 minutes, with as many as 7 events recorded at each power level during the test. Testing is planned for 40 hours per year and would not exceed 50 hours per year, as regulated by the facilitys air emissions permit.
